Roya Samuels, MD is a pediatrics specialist in Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park, NY and has been practicing for 15 years. She graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in 2005.
She is not only a practicing physician but is also an Assistant Professor at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.
Dr. Samuels' education background and career kept all the club members engaged in conversation. Students had many questions and Dr. Samuels was able to answer them very thoroughly and with patience.
Dr. Samuels brought in a few otoscopes (a scope for examining the workings of the ear canal and tympanic membrane or eardrum) for students to practice on each other.
Overall the meeting was very informative and hands on.
Dr. Yehuda Sabiner - The First Haredi Jew to Complete Medical School
February 25, 2018
North Shore students from the Science Society and Medical Minds Club had the honor of meeting and hearing Dr. Yehuda Sabiner speak with those of our students who are actively engaged in some form or another of extracurricular science learning. What makes his story unique is that he is a Gerrer Chassid form the city of Beni Brak in Israel. Typically, Jews from such insular communities as the Gerrer CHassidim do not send their children to Medical school. In fact, Dr. Sabiner is the first ever to go to the Technion to become a doctor. His story was one of determination and hope. His opening line to the presentation was perhaps the most powerful. He said "If you leave this lecture tonight knowing that if you want something bad enough and dream big, nothing can stand in your way."

With a great student turnout, the first meeting was a terrific way to get our new club off to an awesome start! The first meeting featured Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Ari Hoschander and was extremely informative, interesting and fun! Dr. Hoschander spoke about the steps to his success and about his field in general. He discussed his passion for plastic surgery and described in detail how he got to where he is now. Members were treated to refreshments and one-on-one talk time with the guest speaker.
